My Latest Fake CD!

This is a fun little exercise I like to do when I'm bored.

You can create your own band, your own CD title, and your own CD image, using these three simple steps:

1.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2.
http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3.

The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.


My band used to be William Pinkney, but we've since broken up, basically because we all finally got sick and tired of William's self-centered attitude. The name William Pinkney is fine if you're a solo artist, but what about the rest of us in the band??

The other thing is, William (of course) decided that our CD should be titled, "Inwards And Examine Ourselves".

Well, that's just stupid!

And to top it off, he chose a picture of some Waldon Pond-ish scene (from his scrapbook, no doubt) to slap on as the cover. Here it is:

And we're a goth metal band! Geez!

Needless to say, our CD sold like crap. And we're still in debt trying to pay off the cost of the manufacturing (which William, of course, decided that we all needed to pitch in and pay for).

So, long story short, the five of us decided to strike out on our own. William, I hear, is now doing open mics at the local Starbucks. Considering that he doesn't even play an instrument, his act isn't going over very well. And, you know, a combination of Shakespeare and heavy metal doesn't really strike the latte-drinking crowd's fancy.

But, hey! Our band is doing great! We're booked for Saturday night at the Knights Of Columbus Hall, so stop by if you get a chance.

We call ourselves Governor of West Virginia.

Oh, here's our new CD, by the way:


EDIT: Hey, I thought I'd come up with something new - the whole Shakespeare metal genre, but I was wrong! Check out Jason's band here! The Metal Shakespeare Company

That's really funny. I love the second album cover. Check it out, my band actually does a combo of Shakespeare and heavy metal. It doesn't go over well with the latte drinking crowd, but beer drinkers see to think it's OK. We're called the Metal Shakespeare Company.
